poster for Bernard Buffet Exhibition

Ends in 4 days

Bernard Buffet won the prestigious Prix de la critique at age 19 in 1948 for his representational paintings featuring restrained colors, austere compositions, and bold black brushstrokes. In the 1960s, as abstraction swept the art world, Galerie Tamenaga founder Kiyotsugu Tamenaga became concerned about representational painting dying out and took an interest in Buffet’s work, introducing it to Japan. This exhibition marking the 50th anniversary of Buffet’s first solo show in Japan looks back on the history of the gallery and this artist.



from December 01, 2020 to January 31, 2021
Exhibition Hours 11:00-19:00. Open 11:00-17:00 on Sundays and Public Holidays. Closed on December 28 to January 3.
